NALP's 2017 Associate Salary Survey report shows that the overall median first-year salary as of January 1, 2017, was $135,000, the same as in 2015, the year of the most recent previous survey. What about all those $180,000 first-year salaries that were announced over the course of several months in 2016? Among the more than 500 survey respondents there were not nearly enough offices reporting a $180,000 salary to push the median up to that level.
